In 2017, the largest fibreglass shipyard in China, Jet Tern Marine, designer and builder of the Selene Yachts, and Kingship Marine, the largest aluminium custom yachts builder in Southern China have formed a strategic consortium : SCSA, the « Southern China Shipbuilding Alliance », to enhance their mutual building capacity. Kingship Marine will be in charge of building the aluminium hulls, decks and superstructures while, Jet Tern Marine will be in charge of the interior works, joinery, varnishing, decoration, electrical, mechanical systems and electronics commissioning.
Several Jet Tern Marine designs like the yachts of the Selene 128 to 168 Ocean Explorer line are designed for fibreglass or aluminium construction depending on the requirements of the owner. World famous designer’s projects like Guido de Groot, Bill Dixon or Ivan Erdevicki’s customized yachts can be undertaken by the Southern China Shipbuilding Alliance. The SCSA, with two shipyards, and the SDS, the Selene Design Studio, is now a major player in the shipbuilding industry in China.
